Share this…FacebookTwitterJust recently Anthony Watts posted an article on wildfires penned by Paul Homewood. Lately alarmists have been blaming the active forest fire season on global warming. They warn that warmer temperatures will lead to more wildfires. Is it so? First it’s important to note that warmer temperatures don’t necessarily lead to more drought and […]

Scientists: No Correlation Between Climate Change And Wildfires In California - Or Anywhere Else On Earth

Scientists: No Correlation Between Climate Change And Wildfires In California – Or Anywhere Else On Earth

Share this…FacebookTwitterA “potential connection” between anthropogenic global warming and the frequency or intensity of wildfires in California has yet to emerge in the trend observations. Scientists have found a “lack of correlation between late summer/autumn wildfires” and “summer precipitation or temperature” in coastal California. In fact, “there is no long-term trend in the number of […]

Share this…FacebookTwitterA new study finds that 26 to 19 thousand years ago, with CO2 concentrations as low as 180 ppm, fire activity was an order of magnitude more prevalent than today near the southern tip of Africa – mostly because summer temperatures were 3-4°C warmer. We usually assume the last glacial maximum – the peak […]

Share this…FacebookTwitterThe current furor about an alleged connection between climate change, CO2 emissions, and Australian fires finds no support in the scientific literature. According to scientists, rising CO2 concentrations reduce fire ignition and burned area. Further, both global-scale and Australian fires were far more pervasive during the colder Little Ice Age. Here’s what the scientific […]
